Western Sydney City Deal
Camden Council, together with seven local governments of Western Sydney, the Australian and NSW Governments signed the Western Sydney City Deal on 4 March 2018.
The City Deal is a 20 year agreement between the three levels of government to deliver a once-in-a-generation transformation of Sydney’s west – creating the ‘Western Parkland City’.
The City Deal includes 38 commitments that outline how all levels of government will work together to achieve the following goals:
- Realising the 30-minute city by delivering the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport (formerly the North South Rail Link);
- Creating 200,000 jobs by supercharging the Bradfield Aerotropolis and agribusiness precinct as catalysts for employment;
- Providing opportunities to increase the skills of our residents;
- Respecting and building on local character through access to a $190 million Liveability Program;
- Participation in the Western Sydney Planning Partnership for improved coordination and innovation across the region; and
- Delivering for the Western Parkland City with enduring governance from all three levels of government.

Western Parkland Councils
As part of the Western Sydney City Deal, the eight councils involved have committed to working collaboratively for our region through the formation of a partnership – the Western Parkland Councils.
It’s a powerhouse region – spanning more than 8,000 square kilometres, or two-thirds of Greater Sydney, the eight councils serve more than one million people and expect to welcome half a million more residents by 2036. Collectively, they employ approximately 4,400 staff and spend more than $1 billion annually delivering a wide range of local government services as well as investing a further $660 million each year to community infrastructure and other capital works.
